If you are replying to individual people, use the "quote" function, as reply doesn't notify them or even include anything that identifies who you are responding to. "Reply" simply posts a message, the same as if you scrolled to the bottom of the page and did it there.

Also, if you are responding to multiple people whose messages are on the same page, you can check the box next to "quote", and then click on "quote selected" at the bottom right of the last message on that page. This consolidates multiple replies and helps you avoid multi-posting.






ok got it thanks.

I... never knew this. I always just mousewheel-click (open link in new tab) all the comments I want to quote, then just copy the formatted 'quote' text into a single reply. I knew there must have been an easier way to do it, thanks for this comment, you'll no doubt have saved me a great deal of time in the future.

Time to torrent season 2 of Encouragement of Climb since I was half way through it and you gave just a fucking week's notice buried in a forum in an edited post. There is absolutely no reason you can't post on every show page when the license will expire. If Crackle can do it, every streaming site can.
Guess this means no OVA or season 3. Is this Sentai or Amazon's fault, by chance?

The first series was removed before the second series premiered, and not restored until well after, so this should have no effect on CR's odds of getting the 3rd series:

Sentai or Amazon likely have nothing to do with it. It is more likely just a consequence of how YTV's licenses work. (They were the publisher of all 3 titles in this announcement). The first Climb series also wasn't the first YTV series to be pulled on short notice, or eventually returned.

For a couple of months I had been planning to start Encouragement of Climb 2 around mid-October. Just found out about this today. One guy was in the middle of watching it. http://www.crunchyroll.com/encouragement-of-climb/discussions Apparently it had licensing issues from the beginning: http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-859285/encouragement-of-climb-has-fallen-off-a-cliff I did see this thread when it was originally posted, and watched Magica Wars before it was gone.

@christiecleu I assume any form of automatic notification of a queue item's imminent expiration (like Netflix has? or at least used to have) would be a huge programming burden, so instead, could CR create an email newsletter we can subscribe to that you would send out whenever an expiration announcement is made? That should be an easy solution to reduce frustration. No need for fancy formatting or anything, just quick raw text.

Note that it's "get back" ... Crunchyroll doesn't "rotate" it's catalog, it shows what it has the rights to. So it's not like they "decided" to pull a show.

Some shows will have fixed-term licenses, but it seems like Crunchyroll gets most of their simulcasts with licenses that "rolls over" unless the licensor says otherwise. That means that if a licensor notifies them that the show can't roll over any more, they only get to keep streaming it until the roll-over date.

Often, a license stops rolling over because a physical distributor has picked up the license. When that happens, sometimes Crunchyroll can get a sub-license from the new licensee, and sometimes they can't.

Ironically, it used to be that when Funimation announced a pick-up of a series that was on Crunchyroll, that almost always meant an announcement that the Crunchyroll stream was ending. But now, with the Funimation deal, a lot of those series are coming back with the movement of the subs from the Funimation catalog over to Crunchyroll.

Though it's not like direct licenses are the only ones that expire. Some of the most abrupt expirations have been sub-licensed shows, when the rights of the original licensee expire. It seems like sometimes they wait until the last minute to let Crunchyroll know that the rights are gone.

From the announcement (emphasis added):

Time to catch-up on these shows before October!

Despite the first message showing "Posted 17 days ago , edited 17 days ago", that first part isn't true. Look at the next message after it and you'll see it was posted 24 days ago (in September).
